FOBIF walkers enjoy a sunny August day

Sunny weather made for a great FOBIF walk on 21 August. There were thirty walkers on this excursion to the Muckleford bushlands. Paul Hampton from Muckleford Landcare was the leader with Doug Ralph providing a commentary on the mining history of the area. As usual Frances Cincotta shared her expert knowledge of the local plants. It was wonderful to see early wildflowers, particularly the many massive clumps of Greenhoods.

During the morning, walkers detoured from the track to view see exclusion zones that were established ten years ago. Viewing the Sticky Boronia Boronia anemonifolia that had benefitted from this protection was a highlight of the day.
